About the Show

Tarek is a self-proclaimed real estate genius with determination and drive. Christina is Tarek's picture-perfect wife, who Tarek's friends still can't believe he landed. In each episode of Flip or Flop, Tarek and Christina flip a new property. From the nail-biting purchase at auction, to the frustrating renovations and maddening showings, to the giddy acceptance of an offer, we'll follow along as these two relatively novice flippers try their hand at the toughest game in town. From purchase to resale, weaving their personal lives within the story of the flip. From paying cash, sight unseen, for a property at auction, through the hapless remodeling process, to the frantic sale, this young couple is putting everything they have into this venture.

Flipper vs. Flipper

Tarek and Christina get a lead on a short sale listing in an upscale neighborhood that has just fallen out of escrow. The large home shows promise for profit and with a heftier-than-usual price tag of $700,000, Tarek and Christina will need financial help from their friend, real estate investor Pete de Best. But with two investors comes two sets of opinions and budgets and schedules suffer the consequences. Have Tarek and Christina taken on too much house and too much co-investor? Who will prevail in this battle of flipper vs. flipper?

Hard Money Blues

Tarek and Christina get a lead on a listing in an upscale neighborhood of Whittier, California and although the entire home will need some serious updating from its original 1969 finishes, the renovation appears to be mostly cosmetic and comparable properties suggest great potential for profit. With all their money tied up in other flips, Tarek and Christina must secure a hard money loan to make an offer on the home; but that alone will cost them hundreds of dollars a day in interest and one never knows what budget-busting financial hazards could be lurking behind those popcorn-textured walls. Can their contractor renovate this big house in a small timeframe or will unforeseen problems leave the project a day late and a dollar short? Could this high-end home and its expensive loan leave Tarek and Christina singing the hard money blues?

Custom Craftsman

Tarek and Christina are contacted by their friend and fellow flipper, Jessie Rodriguez, who has purchased a craftsman style home in an historic area of Santa Ana, California.

It will take both skillsets to finish and sell this project for a profit, and Jessie is hoping to strike a partnership. Can Tarek, Christina, and Jessie combine the speed and cost of a flip with the detailed craftsmanship of a renovation to deliver on this custom craftsman flip?

Pipe Dreams

Tarek and Christina come across a For Sale By Owner property in Garden Grove, California. This type of sale is always exciting for a flipper because it means no real estate agent commissions and an opportunity to negotiate a fair sale price. The house is in good shape and looks to need only cosmetic repairs and improvements. But in the business of flipping, one can rarely judge an old house by its finishes and it is truly what's on the inside that counts. Can Tarek and Christina deal with the hidden problems of an old house or will their hopes of a fast and easy flip turn out to be nothing but pipe dreams?

Big Lot Little Flip

Tarek and Christina spot a new listing in Buena Park, California that's small and run down but sits on a very large lot, offering possibilities for added value and increased profit. With a low asking price compared to comparable properties, the house is already attracting interest from other investors. With no time for close inspection Tarek and Christina place an offer; but do they really know what they're getting into? Do good flips come in small packages or could a flop be at the end of the road of this big lot little flip?

Flop House Flip

Tarek snoops a small four bedroom foreclosure with a pool in La Mirada as Christina heads to the public foreclosure auction where the house is on the docket. Tarek calls Christina, and from his evaluation of the house, Christina bids and wins the house for $210,000, a smokin' deal! However, as soon as Tarek and Christina open the door, it's clear that this dilapidated house needs a full rehab from tip to tail. It's a disgusting, smelly, confusing mess of rooms, with piles of trash, and graffiti everywhere. Tarek seriously underestimated the home's rehab costs, as initial bids from contractors come in at $50,000 and up. The cost alone for cleaning up this flop house is expensive, but when they begin to discover a bevy of unpermitted construction, Tarek and Christina are forced to demo unpermitted additions and spend money to decrease their square footage! With a skyrocketing budget and a rehab plan, which actually might be de-valuing the house, will this flop house Flip Or Flop?

Nothing But Potential

It's a house with great potential and Tarek is ready to pounce, so they make an offer and the bank accepts. But as renovation rolls along to bring this home to its true potential, problems arise. As budgets crash through ceilings and deadlines continue to be pushed, could this latest flip turn out to be nothing but trouble, or will it prove it always had nothing but potential?

A Flip With The Enemy

Tarek and Christina are busier than ever with their growing business. As a result, when a fellow flipper contacts them about partnering on a house and he wants to split the time, money, and profit 50/50, they are very interested. But flipping is not a team sport; it's a competitive business and trade secrets are a closely guarded commodity. Can Tarek and Christina play both mentor and business partner? Will they all see eye to eye on budget and design, or could disagreement dissolve friendship and profit into a flip with the enemy?

But with a tenant still living in the property, Tarek and Christina can't see inside the home before deciding to make an offer and anything could be behind that front door. Will the unknown spell disaster or could a little tender loving care be all that's needed to reverse the woes of this neglected flip?

Too Small to Fail

Tarek and Christina find a short sale home listed in Whittier, California that's rather small but the asking price of $275,000 looks enticing next to comparable properties in the area. With their own resources spread thinly across other flips, Tarek and Christina have only $300,000 to spend on the home and its renovation. Despite their rigid debt ceiling, they're convinced they can purchase and rehab the home within a strict budget. But as problems are discovered and the margins start getting tighter, Tarek and Christina hope they can turn a profit on this investment home that is too small to fail.

Spanish Style Salvage

Tarek and Christiana spot an intriguing listing for a curbside auction for a foreclosed 1920's Spanish style house in Santa Ana, CA. This is a unique opportunity to actually walk through the house, before the bidding starts. Although it needs a complete overhaul it has some charming original architecture still in place that will add to its value. They decide to bid on the property and win the house for $208K, a good price considering comps in the area go up to $325K. Their contractor meets them at the house and finds more issues than Tarek and Christina originally spotted in their walk through. There is some structural damage to the foundation and roof leaks that could be massive projects and additional costs. Tarek and Christina worry these structural issues might blow their entire rehab budget. Will this Spanish style salvage be a profitable flip or a regrettable flop?
